We cover a lot of different carries here on the pages of The Coolector and, in our personal opinion, it’s the humble duffel bag that delivers the most in terms of aesthetics, storage and performance. If you’re inclined to agree, you’ll not find many places better for a wide array of duffel bags to choose from than that of Huckberry.

It has a body cut from a burly, weather- and tear-resistant 10 oz waxed cotton canvas and a top grain leather trim with a distressed vintage finish. ($300)

WP Standard The Military Duffel – $339

Dapperness personified, the WP Standard Military Duffel ($339) is one for those with a love of all things vintage in style. This robust and versatile carry makes short work of finding that sweet spot between too formal and too casual which is usually a little tricky for a leather bag. The WP Standard Military Duffel makes it look like a walk in the park with their classic silhouette. WP Standard founder, Ryan Barr, found design inspiration for this bag from his father’s military duffle that he brought home from Vietnam. He recreated the tough, versatile, simple, and sleek design of his father’s bag in this full-grain leather recreation that will serve you loyally just as Barr’s father’s bag served him. ($339)

Topo Designs 60L Mountain Duffel – $169

If it’s wilderness adventures that you’re looking for a duffel bag for then this supremely striking and robust Topo Designs 60L Mountain Duffel ($169) is sure to tick all of the right boxes. This wonderfully well made accessory from outdoor specialists, Topo Designs, is billed as the ideal haul bag courtesy of having a padded base and sides which ensure the Mountain Duffel keeps you protected from the gear you are carrying. The multiple internal and external pockets keep smaller items organized while the large main compartment can handle anything from ski boots to your trad rack. ($169)

Matador Transit Packable Duffel Bag 30L – $50

The beauty of the weatherproof Matador Transit Packable Duffel ($50) comes from the fact that it can be packed down to be pocket sized when not in use. The packable gear from Matador has become the stuff of legend for those with a love of adventure. Dry bags and waterproof daypacks that pack down to the size of a wallet? Sounds too good to be true, but take our word for it — Matador is the real deal. Their Pocket Duffel continues that rich tradition as a weatherproof duffel that you can pack down smaller than a cell phone or a wallet yet still packs a whopping 30L of capacity when you need it. What’s not to like? ($50)
